Fans were shocked to learn that the villain of Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania would be one of the Avengers’ greatest villains: Kang the Conqueror. Not only was Kang already built up as a significant threat in the finale of the first season of Loki, but fans have long speculated that Kang would be the villain of this new saga.
Of course, this can’t be good for Paul Rudd’s Scott Lang or anyone else close to him if Kang the Conqueror is involved. A villain who has decimated timelines and gone toe-to-toe with the Avengers in the comics single-handedly.
So, it doesn’t help that new footage released at San Diego Comic-Con implies that this Kang has already killed a good share of Avengers from other timelines.
Kang Has Killed Avengers Before
New exclusive footage for Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania was released at San Diego Comic-Con, revealing new details from the film.
In the new footage, Paul Rudd’s Scott Lang is reading excerpts from his new book, “Look Out for the Little Guy,” to a crowd. It’s clear Scott hasn’t seen any action in a while before he gets a call from prison, which has his daughter, Cassie Lang, in custody.
Scott wants Cassie’s help, but he also doesn’t want her to waste her life. He talks about how he saved the world, which is met with Hank Pym calling Scott out for constantly pointing it out, which Janet and Hope also chime in on.
“You’re an interesting man, Scott Lang,” Kang says. “You’ve lost a lot of time, but time, it isn’t what you think. It’s not a straight line.”
Something in a lab explodes and starts sucking them all into the Quantum Realm. They all end up in another world, navigating it in new suits as Bill Murray shows up, who knows Janet.
“Everything you are holding onto, everything you call life, I know how it ends,” Kang says. Scott tells him he made a mistake because he’s an Avenger. “You’re an Avenger?” Kang asks. “Have I killed you before?”
